Dog - feeding questions

Hi

I just got my cocker/lab cross puppy last Wednesday. He's 15-wks old. He weighed 15 lbs the day we got him. Today, he weighs 21 lbs! That's 6 lbs in less than a week!

Is this because he is in a growing stage? He did sleep lots the first couple days... Or is it possible we've been feeding him too much? We started feeding him 3 times a day, but decided to take it down to 2. We feed him about 3 cups of food a day. He is not fat, and I can easily feel his ribs. I'm just wondering if I should be cutting back on his food and/or treats. However I am trying to train him, so he is getting quite a few treats a day...

Let me know what you guys think, and if you have any questions...

Thanks!
